Alaska Oil and Gas Association

 

The state’s biggest economic engine, for good or ill, remains oil and gas.

 

 


The Alaska Oil and Gas Association has announced its yearly industry awards in advance of its annual conference scheduled for the end of the month in Anchorage.

Among them are awards for safety, environmental stewardship, and lifetime achievement.

The Rising Star Award, according to the association, "honors an oil and gas industry professional under the age of 35, who has made an immediate and definitive impact on the oil and gas industry in Alaska."
